Evangelical Church of San Maurizius Zernez

Viel 113, 7530 Zernez


From a medieval predecessor of today's early Baroque complex, the preserved Romanesque tower testifies. In the 15th century, the Patrozinium St. Mauritius is handed down. Knight Rudolf von Planta donated a new building, which was built in 1607 in the shell and completed in 1609.

In the interior of the church there are extraordinary stuccoes in the style of the early Baroque for Graubünden, mainly with richly decorated fruit motifs. In the choir there is a communion table from 1725, around which several epitaphs of important Zernenz families are stored. The organ from 1741 with a tripartite façade stands on a gallery above the choir, which dates back to 1741/1742. Right next to it is the smaller San Bastian Church.
